Songs & Lyrics

Troubadour Electrique

I don’t know why I’m feeling this way
a burning lust to come out and play
the music flows and the melody grows
the troubadour’s alba at the dawn of day

When a cool breeze calls the sun to rise,
I sense the air of Paradise
Timeless words the troubadour wrote
while he sang his songs of love devote

Under your spell
Heaven and hell
Down in the well
Rising in swell

When the night departs
from the morning gate
Can you still recall the serenade?
The troubadour sang while the night began
now the melody lingers a twist of fate

Under your spell
Heaven and hell
Down in the well
Rising in swell


Fade Away (Dark end of the day)

Will you ever go down
into the town
where the angels
would kneel down and cry
and tell the stories of the great wonder why

The angel said:
When you walk
on the road of life
you can see tears rolling by
you feel sorrow
and you feel joy

Thousand mountains you climb
never reaching your aim
you’re waiting for something
for something that won’t come

Black waves of raging water
will throw you ashore
and the hazy dew of newer mornings
will call out for more

like a torch you will light up
for a while you’ll glow
but you fade, fade away
into the dark end of the day

Ice Queen

When the Ice Queen walked into town
wearing a snow-white velvet gown
when the sun, lightened her face
my eyes were blinded by beauty and grace

From one day i go into the next I fly
whirlwinds taking me into the sky
and nothing else matters any more
when snowstorms howling at my door

When I opened my eyes again
the day looked brighter than ever when
there was nothing more I could do
cause I knew the enchantment was true

From one day i go into the next I fly
whirlwinds taking me into the sky
and nothing else matters any more
when snowstorms spin me into the core

When the Ice Queen took over the land
I felt her breathing on my frozen hand
and all of a sudden, I heard a voice
Music Man you’ve got a choice

In my snow land you may always dwell
but play your music or I break the spell
and I’ll be the muse you have felt
so play the music and I never melt

Wonderland

Wonderland (through the looking glass)

In the silence of the night
I keep on staring through the looking glass
and you shine so bright
in a wonderland

I feel my heart
beat like crazy
when you’re passing by

your eyes
take my breath
and make me feel so high

and in the silence of the night
I keep on staring through the looking glass
and you shine so bright
in a wonderland

prayer

Prayer

Save a prayer for the world
Save a prayer for the greedy
who think a soul is made of dollars.

Save a prayer for the violent
who think god is a gun.
Save a prayer for the people
who think freedom is a wall

Save a prayer for the sea.
Save a prayer for the tree.
Save a prayer for the bee

Save a prayer for you
Save a prayer for me
Save a prayer for we the people…

ocean of love

The Ocean of Love

When she smiles
from her golden lips
a drop of honey
slowly drips
into the reign
of a sudden whim
you find yourself
on a limb

It will take your breath away
steal your night and day
through the caves of mystery
you swim ….
into the ocean of love

and while a crazy beat
conquers your heart
a burning heat
will tear you apart

and you will dive
into the sea
and you will love
what you see

It will take your breath away
steal your night and day
through the caves of mystery
you swim ….
into the ocean of love

Lullaby for early morning hunters

Lullaby for early morning hunters

Let me crouch over you
and watch you sleep my love
Let me lay down beside
and hold you tight

Let me hear you breathing
and your heart beating
Lay my hands on your hips
Seal a kiss on your lips

Young is the night
I’ve got time on my side
Cause you will stay,
Till the light of day

A lullaby for early morning hunters …

Move it up, Shake it down

We gonna move it all up
shake it all down
we gonna jump together
with our feet off the ground

and we fly in the air
like we just don’t care
leave our troubles behind
and gonna make love tonight

behind the door

Behind the Door

Behind the door
there is something more
things left behind
things still to find
Behind the door

Stay at Home

I stay at home
All alone
I’m stranded on my own

In the garden
I hear the birds sing
They’re the warden
of a newborn spring

They seem happy
and without fear
And they fly over the graveyards
without a tear

And i wish i could sing
In that blue sky above
And I wish I had a wing
so i could fly like a dove

I would fly above the ocean
from the east to the west
To the shores of Peru
and rest upon a crest

But I stay at home
All alone
I’m stranded on my own

Silence in the Street

There is silence in the street
I can hear my walking feet
And I’m so aware
There is some magic in the air

No cars spitting out their gas
I’m walking first class
I’m a king without a crown
On the pavement in my home town

I love corona walks
Meditation walks
I love the silence all around
It’s Paradise lost i found

Every time I step on a stone
I see an angel on a throne
Visions of Joana
Mona, Mary, Diana
Alexandra, Valentina
Laura, Eve and Helena
Angels with a crown
On the pavement in my home town

I love corona walks
Meditation walks
I love the silence all around
It’s Paradise lost, I found…

Gloomy Day by Len

Gloomy Day

Days double the daze,
embrace the mellow maze
feel the grace when gloomy days
wake up with a sleepy face

daffodils down the drain
you can feel their pain
on a station in the rain
you wait in vain for a train

ding a dong
sing along
you may be right
you may be wrong

ding a dong
sing along
you may be weak
you may be strong

you may be good
you may be bad
you may be happy
you may be sad

but everything’s okay
on a gloomy day

Peace of Mind

Where can I find
some peace of mind
Where can I go
I just don’t know

My love
Far away
On the video chat
We talk every day

Limited by borders
The absence of flights
We gotta be strong
Keep our faith upright

One day
We’ll meet again
I just don’t know when

Where can I find
Some peace of mind
Where can I go
I just don’t know

days of reflection

Reflection

These are the days
of reflection
These are the hours
of resurrection

These are the minutes
to stand still
These are the seconds
to feel the chill

I’m back in the house
where i grew up to be a man
I’m happy to talk with my mother
about the days back than

This is the year
to go back to my roots
This is the era
to pick the fruits

This is the time
to embrace the past
This is the moment
to let the future last

And down at the graveyard
where my father rest
I see his shadow on the tombstone
and I feel blessed

Lenny

Lenny

Little Lenny
holds his grandmother’s hand
a strong wind’s blowing
in a river land

Going to the bakery
where he starts to sing
Four years of innocence
he’s the king

He sings about a woman
who flirts with every guy
and some bible belt ladies
give him an angry eye

Lenny knew it from the start
he was born to be a star
and be a music man
playing air guitar

Lenny does a playback
in front of a crowd
On a badminton racket
he’s playing so loud

at night he’s dreaming
he’s in a rock ‘n roll band
than he starts screaming
on a stage of quicksand

Lenny knew it from the start
he was born to be a star
and be a music man
playing air guitar
Little Lenny

the dream girl couldn't sleep

The Dream Girl Couldn’t Sleep

When the dream girl sighs
she’ll take you away
over the mystic doorstep
to a forest…. far away

she will paint in colors
on the wall of fate
she will draw the curtains
of a translucent state

the dream girl couldn’t sleep at night
she’s busy invading dreams
sowing the seeds of love
on a lucid reverie

she will hunt you down
and haunt your dream
of love and emotion
and silent screams

she will linger on
face the mirror of your soul
like a newborn baby
without a goal

the dream girl couldn’t sleep at night
she’s busy invading dreams
sowing the seeds of love
on a lucid reverie

dream girl dream a dream girl

Vampire

She’s a vampire
but she won’t bite
she’s a vampire
she’s out of sight

she’s a vampire
she steals your heart
for the moon
is ready to part

on the night shift
asleep at day
a pale diamond
a moonlight serenade

She loves to play the cello
a little slow and mellow
move her fingers on a string
and make you think you’re the king

Like a fairy
with round cheeks
she always finds
but never seeks
Vampire …

Blues and the Muse

I’ve got the blues, I’ve got my shoes
I’ve got a muse and nothing to lose
carry my guitar on my back
I pick a flower on the lonesome track

the troubadour writes. the troubadour sings
about dirty angels losing their wings
the troubadour dives into the sea
riding the waves on a desert tree

and I’m going round and round
feel the rhythm hear the sound

a place for noble man to go
into the alleys of the soul
into the gutters of the mind
into the dawn…. that was left behind

I ‘ve got the blues. i’ve got my shoes
I’ve got a muse and nothing to lose
carry my guitar on my back
I travel the roads….and don’t look back

and I’m going round and round
feel the rhythm hear the sound

Ocean of Love

The Siren won’t sing today

The siren used to come out and play
like a muse she showed the way
her songs blew the night away
and gave birth to a brighter day

Slowly slip sliding away
it led the senses allay
like a flower in a field of May
like a soul on all saint’s day

Now the shores are full of hearsay
about the siren stranded today
how the sun turned her into clay
and the siren won’t sing today

Stranded today
on the sand she lay
like a flower in May
that was blown away

she won’t sing today
the siren won’t sing today

The music man

The Music Man

The music man thinks of the place
where the muse had passed with so much grace
was it real or was it a dream?
Sometimes things are not what they seem

One thing he learned from the days
when the whirlwinds held him in their sways
music is the language of the soul
there is no escape from the whole

and if you trod along the road
take a look at the inner side
discover the path to the mystery that you hide
and open your heart for the god’s favorite art

music,
listen to the music
feel the music…
and the siren sang
music man play the music while you can

Catch a Lightning Ray

When I feel the lightning wanna strike me today
and rains of confusion are coming my way

I will be running find a place to hide
on the slippery roads I try to stride

I gotta keep on going along the way
I gotta keep on running and catch a lightning ray

Serene

Serene i feel
the embrace of a smile
and all i want
is to stay for a while
the island dream
slumbers in here
the sirens song
like a whisper in my ear

serene like a dream
taking me away
serene like the night
encounters the day
the doors of your room
lead me back to the isle
where songs are made
with the embrace
of a smile

crawling the waves of my soul
i hear the song
that makes me feel whole
the touch of your wings
make me fly
and I …. feel serene

serene like a dream
taking me away
serene like the night
encounters the day
and the doors of your room
lead me back to the isle
where songs are made
with the embrace
of a smile
